The Restylane family of products is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These fillers appear as a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is uniquely formulated to mimic your body’s own naturally occurring stores of hyaluronic acid (a youth-supporting component of the skin). These fillers work best for laugh lines, otherwise known as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Dermal fillers are injections made to your face to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while restoring your face’s natural volume and fullness.
Restylane Silk is specifically designed for subtle and natural looking lip augmentation and the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. This product comes in the form of a gel that is finer and smoother than the other Restylane products. This gel allows for a more precise, ‘softer’ result, perfect for enhancing and restoring the look of lips. Restylane Silk is administered with an ultrafine needle, which is created specifically for injection accuracy and precision. All our Restylane products also incorporate 0.3% lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to aid with minimizing discomfort.
Restylane Lyft is specifically designed for cheek augmentation and the improvement of age-related midface contour deficiencies. This treatment can also help correct moderate to severe facial folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines). Restylane Lyft can restore facial volume that is lost with age and can leave cheeks looking smoother and fuller.
Treatment Results & Recovery
Prior to the treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort. The dermal filler is then carefully injected in the targeted area with a fine needle, to achieve the desired enhancement. Depending on the number of areas being treated, the process usually takes about 30 minutes. Due to how quick and simple the injectable treatments are, patients consider them a great ‘lunch break’ procedure that can be easily accommodated into their schedule.
Visible results will be seen immediately. After your first treatment, your face will have a fresher and younger looking appearance. Dermal Fillers will add volume to your face while smoothing away wrinkles.
Dermal filler treatments have zero downtime, which means you can return to work and resume your regular activities immediately afterwards! Ice is recommended to remedy any discomfort before and after treatment. Rarely, a patient may experience mild redness or swelling at the point of injection; these symptoms usually resolve themselves quickly.
